When: 2013-07-06

Collection location: Rockingham Co, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: pete (petepann)

Specimen available

I will have to come back and edit this post with the “juicy” details in the morning. Posting Three Amanitas that were found earlier today. I have details documented on paper. Unfortunately, I do not have time to transfer them here tonight. I hope this is acceptable to everyone. I am hoping to discuss A. onusta further in detail with Dr. RET also. One key note on this specimen before someone attempts to change it to A. bisporigera. It has NO scent. Where as A. bisporigera smells strongly (to me) “chlorinish”.

no member of phalloideae would have those layers of volvar material on its cap.
that insanely long volval sac makes this whetstoneae, IMO.

as the volva gets removed from the cap over time, striations should appear.
these also will stain reddish. lots of good and unique features for whetstoneaea.

nice find.
